After a three day break due to weather inclinations, the Cleveland Indians are set to take on the Minnesota Twins in San Juan Puerto Rico tonight and Wednesday.

The Indians are currently sitting at 8-6 and 2nd in the AL Central and also coming off a rough go in their last outing losing 8-0 after getting an early 4-0 lead.

The Twins sitting at 7-4, are in 1st in the AL Central, but have also played the least amount of games in the MLB this season at 11.

The start of this two game series will feature Cleveland ace Corey Kluber who is off to a hot start with a 1-1 record with a 1.57 ERA through 3 starts this season.

The Twins will be sending right hander Jake Odorizzi to the mound to face off against Kluber. Odorizzi is also off to a quick as well posting a 1-0 record and a 2.20 ERA through his three starts this season.

Tonight’s game will be a homecoming for Indians players Francisco Lindor and Roberto Perez who both grew up in areas near San Juan and expect big performances out of them throughout the next two games.

Tonight’s game will also be the first time these two teams see each other this year and expect competitive games in this series but also as the year goes on.

The Indians are the clear favorites to win the division, but the Twins are no to far behind with rising star 3rd Basemen Miguel Sano and the additions to their starting pitching staff the Twins will be a tough

contender all year long. The Indians finished 12-7 last year against the Twins and I expect the win total to be around that same number again.

Look for the Indians offense to attack Odorizzi early, so far this season the Indians have scored majority of their runs in the first four innings where the bats have gone quiet late in games .

I expect a great pitchers duel in tonights game with a high powered audience from all the fans in San Juan. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 ET.
